Adult Learning Disorders synopsis
Recent developments in neuroimaging and genetics techniques have enhanced our understanding of neurodevelopmental disorders in adults. The authors in this volume not only discuss such developments that apply to adults with learningdisorders, but also treat their translation into clinical practice.
A group of chapters addresses developmental concerns as children and adolescents with learningdisorders approach youth. Experts discuss dyslexia, language and writing disorders, which may be a group of widely studied learningdisorders, from the point of view of neuroimaging and genetic bases.
Classes in Neuroscience for Verbal Disorders,Mathematics, and Executive Functions are also included. Below are clinically oriented chapters with case studies, housing recommendations and assessment considerations.
Specialized population study - such as late secondary, college, medical, and law students - shows how our expanded knowledge base can apply to clinical practice. The heterogeneity of adults with learningdisorders, the complexity of their clinical presentation and interfering disorders are treated from both a scientific and clinical point of view, illustrating how experimental research and clinical practice inform each other.
This volume will enhance the practice of physicians and teachers who work with adults with neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as provide current background information to adult researchers with learningdisorders.
